Avoid the Hefty EPA Fines by Using Compliant Products & Procedures

Become EPA certified today!

By using compliant products and procedures, you can reduce your chance of being tacked with a fine from the EPA.

The Environmental Protection Agency’s Renovation, Repair, and Painting Rule (EPA RRP) has been in full-force, by penalizing contractors that are not using the proper products and processes required for renovation work. With millions of homes across the country aging, renovation contractors are called on to do projects that require work with lead paint. As a section of the rule states, if a contractor works on any home built pre-1978, you must be trained, certified, and using lead-safe work practices. The fines for not complying with the guidelines can be as high as $37,500 per incident, per day. With this rule in place, many contractors have already contacted the leader in dust control solutions, Dustless Technologies, to get their hands on the full line of certified HEPA vacuums, tools and accessories to help them comply with the regulations when doing renovation, repair and painting. read more

DustBubble™ included on the DIY Network

DustBubble™ included on the DIY Network with Tool Expert, Chris Grundy in “Cool Tools.”

Chris Grundy is a tool expert from many perspectives. He currently is the host of a show called Cool Tools that showcases hot new products for any do-it-yourselfer!

He gives insight on some of the latest and greatest tools within the industry.

DustBubble 3 Pack by Dustless TechnologiesOne of his favorite’s is the all-new DustBubble™ offered from the top manufacturer of dust collection products, Dustless Technologies. The DustBubble is a great new way to capture dust while drilling holes in sheetrock, plaster, tile or wood to mention a few. The DustBubble  uses a combination of adhesion to the wall and the action of the drill itself to catch virtually all the dust when you drill. They make drilling jobs easier – leaving both hands free while you drill and saves you the clean up afterwards. When you’ve finished drilling, you simply remove the DustBubble™ from the wall and discard it along with all the dust. It REALLY is that simple! read more

You Can Run, But You Can’t Hide From Lead

You can run, but you can’t hide from lead! Massachusetts Attorney General Settles with Landlords.

As the saying goes, “you can run but you can’t hide’ is very true, especially when it comes to lead-based paints. According to reports from Legalnewsline.com, the Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley announced settlements on Friday with multiple landlords to resolve allegations that they refused to rent to families with children.

Celina Puszko, Alojzy Jackiewicz, Gregory Howell and Scott Michels allegedly refused to rent to families with children to avoid obligations to remove lead paint hazards. It is illegal under Massachusetts state law to discriminate against housing applicants because they have children or because the rental would force the landlord to remove lead hazards. read more

Murrell placed Baltimore children at risk of permanent injuries by violating federal law and ignoring repeated orders to comply with lead paint regulations,” said U.S. Attorney Rod J. Rosenstein. “It is unacceptable in 2012 for pregnant women and children to be exposed to lead paint in violation of the law.” read more

The vacuum is able to go directly from dry to wet operation without harming or changing any filters.

Dustless Technologies – Hot Topic for the 2012 National Hardware Show

New products spark excitement at the National Hardware Show

The running of the 67th National Hardware Show was a big event for over 2,000 exhibitors from across the world. Dustless Technologies, located in the South Hall, was very ecstatic about the interest in their brand new dust collection products.  With cutting-edge innovation always in mind, Dustless Technologies has developed some unique items for contractors, all proudly Made in the USA. These three items below were the hot topic at the annual National Hardware Show in Las Vegas,Nevada.

  1. SawBuddie 7 inch Dust ShroudSawBuddie: Most of the renovation contractors that came by the booth really got excited about the new SawBuddie. “Who doesn’t like having a cleaner working area?” said several current dealers. This unique product is the ONLY dust shroud available for reciprocating saws. A very quick and simple installation of the shroud allows for point-of-origin dust collection, capturing 99% of airborne dust. The product is also in compliance with the EPA RRP regulations when used with the Dustless Technologies HEPA Full Unit Certified Vacuum. The SawBuddie fits most reciprocating saws and has a line of sight gap within the bristles so you can always have an unobscured view for precise cutting. To see a demonstration of the product check out the video on the product page here.
  2. DustBubble 3 PackDustBubble™: The new DustBubble’s have been a hit with many different markets – from home improvement gurus to construction professionals, and everyone in between! The hardware attendee’s that stopped by really liked the fact that doing something as simple as drilling holes in a wall, can now be done dust-free with the DustBubble’s. The product allows for no more mess on the floor or airborne dust while drilling holes using a hand drill. The product is a transparent pouch that sticks to the wall and collects virtually all of the dust while drilling. Simply “stick it, drill it, toss it!” Now offering bright, space-saving countertop packaging displays for retail locations. For more information on the DustBubbles click here.
  3. BobCat Ash SeparatorBobCat™: The hardware show brought forward some exciting products that are for home and hearth use. The new patent pending BobCat Ash Separator was on everyone’s “to-see” list. This product is a totally new concept in ash removal due to its ability to remove both cold and warm ash from fireplaces or wood stoves. There is no product on the market like it that can handle “warm” ash. The product is a safe, neat, and easy way to clean ash using a household vacuum or shop style vacuum. You can get as much power as you need, all based on the power of the vacuum you attach to the BobCat. The unique design of the product allows you to clean the filter without opening the canister, simply by lifting, and releasing, the spring-loaded handle. UPDATE: The BobCat has been discontinued and replaced by the Cougar Ash Vacuum. It provides the same great features with the vacuum included.

Dustless Technologies was excited to hear all the positive feedback from display and demonstration at the trade show. All of our products are proudly made in the USA.
